Come on stage with Young Company!

Young Company is OCT’s year-round student production program. Young actors will love taking to the stage as they work alongside their directors, adult actors, and technical staff, working to bring productions of full-sized adventure to life.

Through a diverse and exciting production season, Young Company offers countless opportunities for children and teens to experience the excitement of the theatre as they hone their craft, develop new skills, overcome challenges, and make new friends in a safe and encouraging production environment.

A Christmas Story


The Christmas classic that follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Higbee's Department Store. The consistent response: "You'll shoot your eye out!" All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's father winning a lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more.

Step 2: Audition

Prepare for your audition by finding a monologue and songs that allow you to demonstrate your range. Remember, all audition material needs to be memorized, so make sure you practice at home.

If no audition is required, you're free to go ahead and sign up once enrollment opens up.

Once you have completed any required auditions and made sure that you are able to commit to the production schedule it's time to sign up. For most shows, you'll be able to sign up online, by phone at (405) 606-7003, or in person. Please note that all shows have maximum cast sizes, so it's important to sign up as early as possible.
